Barcelona ready to increase Coutinho offer

Barcelona seem to be making Liverpool forward Philippe Coutinho one of their top transfer targets this summer as they plot yet another bid for the Brazilian playmaker.

It is believed that Barcelona have already seen two bids knocked back by Jurgen Klopp, but it hasn’t put the Spanish giants off as they are prepare a third bid.

This information is according to who say that Barcelona will return with a €60million (£51m) bid for the Brazilian.

Barcelona forwards Lionel Messi and Neymar are really driving their club to make the move having being impressed with his performances in the Premier League and in Neymar’s case, having seen him up close and personal on international duty for Brazil.

Liverpool hold all the cards

The former Inter Milan player still has five years left on his contract at Anfield, meaning that Liverpool hold all the power. The player himself is not believed to be pushing for a deal, as he wants to create history of his own at Liverpool, but a move to Barcelona could also be too much to turn down.

The 24-year old has scored 39 goals in 177 appearances since he moved to Anfield in 2012. He has also scored seven goals in his 25 caps for Brazil

The article claims that Coutinho would demand €6.5m-a-year to sign for the Catalan club.
